      This compassion is symbolised through Somax’s mule Beauty, whom Somax forgives for indirectly killing his son as he acknowledges that seeking revenge on the mule “wouldn’t have brought him back”. It is this ability to forgive and the courage which this action takes that is praised as the definition of real heroism in “Ransom”.

Although awareness of mortality is central to humanity in Ransom, Malouf suggests that it is possible to take this awareness too far. At this point in the novel, Achilles's sense of "earth-heaviness" is a sign that he is allowing himself to be defined entirely by death (his own, and Patroclus's).

Chicago. Summary. The book opens with Achilles looking out onto the sea, listening for the voice of his mother. Even though he knows he belongs to the Earth, that he has farmed it, and that he will eventually return to dust in it, he still feels attached to the water, remembering the different names he would have for the sea as he called to his mother.

Conventionally described as the greatest warrior to take part in the siege of Troy, Achilles is half-human and half-divine: his father Peleus is a human king, but his mother Thetis is a sea nymph.
